An automated telescope of the NELIOTA project (financed by an ESA-funded) on March 1 of this year recorded a meteorite fall on the moon, which became the hundredth since the observations started on March 1, 2017.
In just three years, 100 meteorites fell to the surface of the Moon, and this is only one of those that could be fixed with a telescope.
The frequency of meteorites falling on the Earth’s satellite indicates that the number of meteorites falling on the Earth has also increased. Unlike the Moon on Earth, meteorites fall only if they occurred over densely populated areas.
What is the reason for the significant increase in the number of meteorites near the earth recently?
